All my posts this week were pre-scheduled. While my blog was on auto pilot I was actually out enjoying the last days of summer vacation with my kids. One day this week we sought out some covered bridges in central Ohio. I love photographing the bridges and my kids love the fact that there is always water under them. :) We sat, played in the water, enjoyed the breeze and the sun, and watched some kids fishing from the bridge. In my son’s hand below you will see a homemade crayfish catcher he made. Thank goodness he didn’t catch anything, cause I didn’t want to drive home with live crayfish.
And of course corn fields are in no short supply here… the older kids played around the bridge and my youngest played in the corn fields.
The next day we got in the car and drove to Mohican State Park. Actually I saw a brochure about the park while my kids were riding a carousel and we just got in the car and drove to it.. about 2.5 hours away from home. The drive was kind of scary with steep drop-offs. But the smell of the forest was amazing. We could have spent a week there. My son kept asking why we can’t just build some huts and live there forever. It was so beautiful… we hope to go camping there soon!
School starts tomorrow and we have had such a wonderful summer. I don’t want the fun to end! Oh well, off to start planning for hay rides, pumpkin festivals, trips to the apple orchard, and all that fun Fall stuff that is sure to come…
